Yep! We've set a date...September 13, 2011. That's only a couple of weeks from now. I'm getting nervous, but I'm so anxious, too.
Next Tuesday, a person from the school district wants to come to interview me and my donor. They want to take our picture and write up an article to send to the media. Check out the newspaper, I guess.
Next Thursday, I have an appointment to meet with the pharmacists at Christ Hospital. They want to do some education about my transplant medication.
This is the day it becomes real, I think. I will get one more blood test, a chest x-ray, and an EKG. I will also meet one more time with the surgeon, the transplant coordinator and the social worker. I will also pre-register for my surgery.
On the big day, I have to report to the hospital at 6:00 am. The surgery will start at 7:30 am. That doesn't give me much time to think about it!
